NC2720 : Uamh an Uisge

taken 9 months ago, 3 km from Inchnadamph, Highland, Great Britain

Uamh an Uisge
Uamh an Uisge
Uamh an Uisge [Cave of the Water] is one of a trio of caves further up valley from the Lower Traligill Cave. The name is obvious as there is a strong stream flowing through the cave, whilst daylight can be seen filtering in from above as there is a huge collapsed 'pot hole' higher up the hillside. It is a mystery to me why there should be a strong stream here in a cave which is on a bluff above both the Traligill River and other feeder streams. I'm not quite sure how the Traligill plumbing system works.
